Perfect Day Trip with Beautiful Sights
Mar 2020 • Solo
I enjoyed this day so much. Even though there is a lot of driving, all the activities really broke it up great. Sylvain was a great guide and really made the most of the day for us after we discovered the 12 apostles lookout was closed. We had the opportunity to do the helicopter tour instead and were able to spend extra time at the other stops. Everything was beautiful, even when it was raining. Highly recommend.

Great Ocean Road and 12 Apostles Day Trip
Jan 2020
There were never 12 apostles and a couple have fallen into the sea.Notwithstanding that we saw beautiful scenery on our journey along with a koala spotting stop. The driver and coach were good but on reflection perhaps we should have visited museums in Melbourne

Worthwhile day trip
Jan 2020
Alan was a great guide, informative and pleasant. Sites and attractions were worth seeing, with sufficient time at each location. Crowds were a little thick and flies were plentiful.

Hi William, and thank you for your review! We are glad to hear you enjoyed your day with us! Hot days tend to bring the fly friends around, but crowds can be avoided on our Reverse Great Ocean Road tour :) We wish you safe travels, and hope to see you again on our other tours!

Gerat Ocean Road - Tour Guide Simon C.
Jan 2020
The great ocean road expereince was awesome. Simon C was our tour guide and had a lot of knowledge regarding the area. We started out at 7:15 am on a comfortable 39 passenger bus. We stopped at several places along the Ocean road. One little town we stopped in for lunch was Apollo Bay at a fish and chips establishment. The food was good but it took a while for us to get out food. We only had an hour time for lunch and the restaurant we went to took 35 min. We were able to see Koalas in the wild which was amazing. The once we got to the 12 Apotles other than the flies it was a beautiful memrable trip. We returned going through colac and hearing about the farmning and logging industry. Over all a great trip and is well worth doing. The bus was compforatable for the 12 hour excursion.

Absolutely stunning day
We did the Ocean Road trip in reverse, and a picnic lunch was included.
We were fortunate to have LEON Dark as our driver and guide. He was fantastic, knowledgable and willing to go the extra mile to give his passengers a great day.
This is a must do tour, to experience the Great Ocean Road, and if you are lucky like us, you might see kangaroos and koalas, parrots and cockatiels in the wild.

A truly memorable day.

It was a long day that was a bit whistle stop. Our driver lacked personality and friendly interaction. Despite that the scenery was lovely.

Jan 2020
The 12 Apostles; Loch Ard Gorge, koala’s and Parrots at Kenneth River and the Kangaroos and Koalas at Cape Otway all incredible and absolutely worth seeing. Our driver/guide was a mine of information, unfortunately little of the information he shared with his captive audience was relevant to the tour or indeed of interest to his passengers! A very long journey to be stuck on a bus with someone who likes to hear his own voice.

The tour was amazing.
Our tour guide Kate was the best!
She provided useful anecdotes along the way that made the trip even more amazing.
Despite the unexpected heavy traffic on the road, she was able to make sure we had our day’s fill of the advertised sites.
I would do it again!
